Scholarship beneficiaries will be announced by October 17, 2022.

What are the selection criteria for these scholarships?

Students will be considered for these scholarships primarily on a needs basis, with the goal  of expanding access to communities and demographic groups that have limited access or resources for training opportunities such as this.

The final decision will be made by Massage Envy and a panel of faculty and staff at the New Mexico School of Massage jointly.

What are the steps for applying to the scholarship program?

All applicants must be accepted to our full-time Licensed Massage Therapy training, have paid the $100 application fee and completed the scholarship application to be considered for the scholarship.

How do I apply?

Simply begin your application process below and elect to answer the 4 questions regarding the scholarship. This will ensure you are being considered for all the scholarships.

Please note: you must apply in full by answering all the scholarship questions in the application, pay the application fee, and be accepted into the program to be eligible for the scholarship consideration.

If I win a 50% Scholarship, when do I need to pay off the rest?

We understand that even 50% of tuition can be a blocker to many students, so we are offering the same repayment plans and terms we offer our full-tuition students. These come in 2 or 5 payment options.
